Pisteuo

What does the word "Pisteuo" (usually translated "believe") mean? I ask because I've seen definitions of this word that include things like "trust," "commitment," and "confidence," and none of those ideas seem a necessary part of the English word to me. (I mean, as an English speaker, I could say th...

Prepositions

What's the difference between the prepositions eÍpið and eÍn?

Re: oèsov in John 16:23

...Anyway here is the Byzantine text (the Alexandrian text does not have "οσα") and my even more wooden translation: [John 16:23] και εν εκεινη τη ημερα εμε ουκ ερωτησετε ουδεν αμην αμην λεγω υμιν οτι οσα αν αιτησητε τον πατερα εν τω ονοματι μου δωσει υμιν and in that day, you (pl.) will not ask me...

ὅσα in John 16:23

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance identifies oèsov as a personal pronoun, and defines it as follows: 1.) as great as, as far as, how much, how many, whoever And I find that very confusing. Is it a plural personal pronoun (like the Elizabethan "Ye"), or does it signify some ambiguous number (as in "how...

Re: Kai

So when Jesus said we must worship God "in Spirit and Truth" He was speaking of two different things? And when John the Revelator said that His name is "Faithful and True" he was speaking of two different attributes? There's no such thing as a "hendiadys," and the man who wrote the following doesn't...

Re: Kai

If you suggest that the obvious meaning is otherwise, I would like to see any clear example of "και" being used completely without a conjunctive sense, such that it is impossible to take it to mean something like "and" or "also". How about Ephesians 4:32? γίνεσθε δὲ εἰς ἀλλήλους χρηστοί, εὔσπλαγχνο...

John 3:5 (two questions)

First, I'd like to now if the following statement (which I read on another forum) is grammatically correct? The last part of the passage (John 3:5) literally reads: “except anyone is born of water and [kai] Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of the God.”[8] As seen, in allowable contexts the G...
